bafra osman e belgin ş ile ilgili görsel sonucu
       Swept away...literally and figuratively.

In Samsun's Bafra district, at 22:30 the night before last Belgin Ş.
(15) and Osman E. (20) went out on the Çetinkaya Bridge over  the
Kızılırmak River, called '155' (911) and said "we can't be together
so we're jumping into the Kızılırmak and committing suicide."
After jumping and being dragged 50 meters by the current, Belgin
Ş. grabbed onto a bundle of driftwood and, as she tried to hold on
to Osman E., she cried out "Help! Is there anyone there? We're
freezing, help us!"

Nearby citizens heard her cries but could do nothing to help.  Bafra
firefighters rushed to the scene but had no boat.  After 45 minutes,
Osman E. made one last attempt to get onto the driftwood bundle
but in vain, as the couple was carried down the river.  In the morning
Belgin Ş.'s body was recovered but Osman E.'s has yet to be found.

Osman E., the married father of one child, had met Belgin Ş. when
he went to Bursa to work in a textile factory.  Upon his return to
Samsun, Belgin Ş. followed him and even attended Osman E.'s
wife's birthday party, as a 'work friend' of Osman E.

"To Grandmother's house we go, over her liver and

The Gendarmerie learned in their investigation that Pembe B.
was killed because she was gossiping about her grandchildren.
Granddaughters Fadime B. and Rukiye K. went to Pembe B.'s
home in a rage about the gossip, argued with her and killed her
with knives and an ax.  Allegedly, their parents helped the girls.
Fadime B. has been jailed but Songül and Faruk B. were released.

Subliminal Material Girl's Narco-Consonants

türkçe links to original Turkish article

(Sözcü Newspaper, 17 March 2018)

subliminal seems to be something in the air, or maybe the 

   What's in a name?...especially the consonants!

Prof. Faruk Aşıcıoğlu, the head of the Forensic Medicine Institute
at Istanbul University, has claimed that famous pop star Madonna,
the Spice Girls and jazz musician Louis Armstrong, who died in
1971, "used subliminal messages" with regard to narcotics. 
Aşıcıoğlu provided this information to Parliamentarians in the
Turkish Parliament's Commission on Narcotics and Dependency.

According to Aşıcıoğlu, "Madonna came to Turkey as part of her
world tour.  Take out the vowels from her name and you're left
with 'MDNN' - and the drug 'Ecstacy' has a substance 'MDMA' (!).
So, look at this secret subliminal message.  And Louis Armstrong
had an album named 'Muggles'.  I'm not saying anything bad about
the artist himself, but in that jazz album there are may words that
are complimentary of narcotics.  These things have to be controlled
somehow. Either you don't allow Madonna into Turkey with her
album or, at the very least, you only allow persons of a certain
age to be exposed to it."

"Hey Mom, by the way, what do you want for Mother's
Day?" (said in between punches)

In Aydın's İncirliova district, a prisoner out on leave beat up his
mother (!).  B.Y. (35), wanted for various crimes, was put into
the Aydın E-type open prison last month.  Upon obtaining leave,
B.Y. met with his mother in a park in the Cumhuriyet neighborhood.
Because his mother had previously filed a complaint against her
son for beating and threatening, B.Y. wanted his mother to retract
her complaint.

When the mother refused, B.Y. beat her up and fled the scene.
However, a citizen recorded the incident on a telephone.  The
mother was helped by passers-by, obtained a report related
to her injuries and again filed a complaint against her son at the
police station.  With his leave period expired, B.Y. was put back
in prison (!).

the money was deposited in Aydın and his wife's bank account.

In December 2017, Aydın turned over control of the company
to others and disappeared with millions of lira.  CHP Bursa
Parliamentarian Erkan Aydın has asked Customs and Trade
Minister Bülent Tüfenkçi how Aydın could have been allowed
to leave the country.  Meanwhile, the Istanbul Anatolia Public
Prosecutor has appointed a caretaker for all Çiftlik Bank offices
in Turkey.

     Can they file for unemployment insurance?

In the African country of Zambia, the Minister for National
Guidance and Religious Affairs, Godfridah Sumaili, has
announced that the sale and use of blow-up dolls is illegal. (!)
According to the Minister, the prohibition of blow-up dolls
falls under the following scope of restrictions against "the
production of obscene materials and items, their possession,
import, sale and exhibition."

Violators are subject to a jail sentence of up to 5 years. In
explaining the rationale for the ban, Minister Sumaili
explained that "God created men and women to satisfy sexual
needs but these inanimate things are immoral."  On the other
hand, the leader of the liberal party, Sean Tembo, countered
that "some men have an inferiority complex.  Also, using
blow-up dolls for sex  helps to reduce the incidence of AIDS."
